A stunning period farmhouse oozing traditional charm that’s ideal for a horse lover, a gardener, or just someone looking for a rural escape
Hidden down a country lane among the verdant hills of North Wales, lies a property brimming with character and history.
Ffrith y Geubren is a period farmhouse, but one that has been sympathetically extended and which is surrounded by almost 14 acres.
Its elevated position means the views over the rolling landscape towards the Clwydian Hills are an absolute delight.
Inside, key features in many of the rooms include beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls, and roof windows offering plenty of light.
The cosy sitting room has a lovely fireplace with slate hearth, while the kitchen is already fitted with base and wall cabinets, and a cooker that includes three ovens and a pan warming drawer, plus there’s an original inglenook fireplace.
There’s the luxury of a garden room with an oak-framed roof on which there are two ceiling windows, making it a delightful place to enjoy a summer’s day. Then there’s the library, which has an A-frame ceiling and a freestanding cast-iron fuel stove.
Upstairs are four bedrooms, all of which have vaulted ceilings. The first enjoys thrilling views and has fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room with underfloor heating and marble-effect tiling.
One of the other rooms also has an en-suite shower room, and there’s also a family bathroom on this floor with a freestanding roll-topped slipper bath with pillar taps, plus a walk-in shower.
The spacious grounds have also been put to good use: the Summerhouse is a timber-framed chalet with decking to the front, a bedroom, kitchen/living room and a shower. Then there’s a gym, an outhouse currently used as a freezer room, a Wendy house with barbecue seating area, an orchard, three ponds, lawns and woodland.
Plus, there are numerous farm buildings, including kennels and stables (there’s also an all-weather manège for horse training).
If you want a tranquil rural spot, but one with the space and facilities to make the most of what the countryside has to offer, then take a peek around Ffrith y Geubren.
